If you yearn for the nicer superheroes of days gone by, this reprint collection is probably for you. The various short stories included in this book were previously reprinted in three separate comic books earlier this year. The fourth issue of that series is due out soon.

Charlie Grant, our hero Mr. Jigsaw, is born with the ability from birth to detach his various body parts and mentally control them. This leads to many humorous situations as Charlies learns to use his abilities to fight crime. Mr. Jigsaw (affectionately known as "Jiggy") is the main character, of course, but there are several nice guys and gals to root for in these stories.

These stories originally appeared in comic books and internet web comics 1983 through 2003. I have enjoyed those stories all these years and am thrilled to have these first stories collected in a trade paperback.

So if you're interested in fun, silly, enjoyable stories that combine humor and drams and characters you can like and love - this book is for you.

However, if you already own the first 3 issues of the comic book that is reprinted in this trade paperback, there's not much in the way of extras.

I like the new front cover art by Gary Kato and the nice preview on the back cover of the art for the upcoming issue #4.

I personally love these stories so this trade paperback is worth the price to me even though I already have most of the contents from the previous three comic books included here.

I feel most people would enjoy these books. If you do buy this and have never read about the Adventures of "Jiggy" - you're in for a real treat. I envy those who discover these stories for the first time.

With MR. JIGSAW, writer Ron Fortier and artist Gary Kato creates something rarely seen today; a comic book which is actually comical! Don't get me wrong, MR. JIGSAW has all the real-to-life action, angst, drama, and verve of other comic books. The thing MR. JIGSAW delivers is a light and humorous side of life, expressing not the 'good ol' days' of the past, but the 'good nowadays'. The humor is believable, and fits in with modern day issues.

MR. JIGSAW is a bit Edlund's THE TICK with a tint of SPIDERMAN and a taste of CALVIN AND HOBBES. Despite these comparisons, the Fortier/Kato team makes this a strange and unique book. It returns to the comic book rack a true hero. MR. JIGSAW is a hero that has and deals with believable everyday problems with a quixotic attitude. MR. JIGSAW is a very enjoyable adventure for children and adults of all ages. This volume of the first three MR. JIGSAW comics is an indispensable addition to any comic collection.
